The Cork Trainers


Call us old-school but we usually expect our sneakers to be fashioned out of material like canvas or rubber, or something reasonably malleable and less likely to fall apart, than say cork.

However, that's exactly what Nike has used to create their new trainers.

In celebration of LeBron James' unprecedented year of three-time league MVP and Finals MVP as well as becoming World Champion with his teammates, Nike has commissioned these special shoes.

Based on the Lebron X performance shoe, Nike have created the trainers out of real cork to celebrate the basketball players achievements.

The sneakers are intended for off-court wear, which is lucky as we're not about to play an intense game anyways.

The Nike Sportswear Lebron X cork shoe launches globally in December. See nike.com
